Psychoanalysis became known as the "talking cure" because
(a) it depends on free association
(b) all talk and no action make Jack a dull boy
(c) it was the talk of Viennese café society
(d) he heard a woman’s voice in a dream: “she’ll be riding six white horses when she comes.” and he woke up feeling pretty good.
(e) the shrink with the hearing aid is the single greatest metaphor for the profession since Groucho Marx told a mother of eight that he liked his cigar a lot but took it out of his mouth once in a while
